Somewhat dissapointing, coming from the Coronet factory and with a title like that, I was expecting a lot more. A dim wit boy asks a dim wit girl what she really wants to do on a date, (decorating for the Scavenger sale!) so they go, and the dimwit boy discovers more of what he should do to ask her again for her second date. The proposal for the 2nd date is what propels the film into high geekdom, with taffy pulls, weenie roasts and band concerts proposals thrown your way, Garsh, what is a girl to do? Despite the lead looking a lot like Chris Klein, there's not much more I can reccomend for this film.
